No one can resist the Latin beauty, charm and allure. There’s just something very enticing about Latina women, as well as Latino men, that is impossible to resist. Some of these famous stars dated Latinos, others married them. One way or another, they’ve succumbed to the temptation. Let’s take a look at a list of hollywood celebs who fell victim to the undeniable charm of Latinos.
1. Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Matthew McConaughey met this gorgeous Brazilian model back in 2006 in one of LA’s bars. It had the potential to just be a fling, but it turned out to be much more serious than that. McConaughey fell head over heels for Camila Alves and they got married in 2012. They now reside together in Austin, Texas and have three beautiful children. We can only imagine how attractive those kids are going to grow up with parents like that.
2. Matt Damon and Luciana Barosso
Matt Damon also couldn’t resist the charms of the Latina women. He met his future wife, Luciana Barroso in Miami, where she was tending a bar at the time. Sparks flew and just two years later they were married. In 10 years of marriage, which is like a lifetime in Hollywood, they had three beautiful daughters. These two were so in love that they even decided to renew their vows, just for the fun of it. So many celebs only dream of being that lucky, but it looks like Matt Damon won the lottery of life.
3. Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas
Alec Baldwin, who we all know from 30 Rock also fell victim to the appeal of a Latina woman. Hilaria Thomas is the name of a very attractive Spanish lady who captured the heart of Alec Baldwin. We’re not even sure who got more lucky – Alec for managing to score such a pretty wife or Hilaria for getting herself a very successful husband. It seem like they’re both pretty lucky. They have two kids together called Carmen and Rafael.
4. Rob Schneider and Patricia Azarcoya Arce
Rob Schneider got extremely lucky because his wife, Patricia Azarcoya Arce, is not only easy on the eyes, but also has a great sense of humor. At least we think she does, because it would be difficult to live with Rob without a sense of humor. To give you an example, when Patricia was giving birth to their child, Rob tweeted: “Thank 2 all of you for your good thoughts and well wishes! But I wish this hospital had a bar in it! Where’s the medical marijuana for dad?”
5. Clint Eastwood and Dina Ruiz
Even though actors usually don’t mesh well with reporters and journalists, Clint Eastwood made an exception for the lovely Dina Ruiz. As you might know, Dina Ruiz is TV news anchor, and a very smart and gorgeous one.These two got married all the way back in 1996. They have one child together. Unfortunately this marriage didn’t last forever and ended up in a divorce in 2014. But even so, 18 years is a very long time to be married, especially in Hollywood, especially for someone like Clint Eastwood.
6. Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and J.Lo
Bradley Cooper definitely has a thing for Latina women. He dated the stunning Zoe Saldana on and off for about two years between 2011 and 2013. Too bad that didn’t last. But there’s more. Zoe isn’t the only Latina Bradley fancied. He also tried to date Jennifer Lopez, after she broke up with Marc Anthony.
7. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
This heartthrob is a big fan of Latina women too. He knows what he wants and he’s not afraid to pursue it. As we all know Ryan is married to the incredibly gorgeous Eva Mendes, and it’s hard to decide which one of them do we envy more. So many people doubted their relationship would last, because Ryan is 6 years younger than Eva. But of course it doesn’t matter. Latina women only get more beautiful with age. The gorgeous couple has been married for 5 years now and they have 2 daughters, Esmeralda and Amanda. Just imagine Ryan Gosling watching TV with his girls. Isn’t that just the cutest thing ever?
8. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
We all remember this relationship right? Everyone was talking about it. They were such a hot powerful couple it’s a shame it didn’t work out in the end. Everything about them was so unpredictable. Even their wedding was cancelled mere 4 days before the ceremony was supposed to take place.
9. Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato
This couple has the funniest names ever. Just say it out loud. Isn’t that strangely fun and satisfying?
The story of this couple is oddly simple and cute at the same time. Luisana Lopilato is very famous in Argentina, so she scored herself a backstage pass to one of Michael’s concerts. From that point on it’s history. Michael fell in love almost the moment he laid eyes on Luisana. They got married in 2011 and have two adorable little kids now.
10. Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz
Sometimes I forget that Cameron Diaz is also a Latina, but just look at her name and it becomes obvious. Makes you wonder if that’s what attracted Justin Timberlake. This was another one of those relationships everyone doubted, but hey, it lasted against all odd for four years. And even after they broke up, they still remained friends. How mature of them.
11. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
This relationship started out as the cutest thing ever. Justin seemed like such a cute kid, falling in love with the bewitching Selena Gomez. It was adorable at first, but unlike all the other relationships we’re all sort of glad they split up in the end. Fame obviously got to Justin, and Selena definitely deserves someone better. You know, perhaps someone who can behave decently and not go all cryptic on Instagram.
12. Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas
Let’s talk about Latino men for a change, and how they’re as irresistible as Latina women, if not more. Melanie Griffith managed to tie down a fine looking Latina man. Who wouldn’t want to marry Antonio Banderas, right? That man is so handsome it hurts, and that accent of his sends shivers down your spine, doesn’t it? When they met they were actually married to other people, but their love had no obstacles. They got married in 1996 and stayed together for 19 years! That’s pretty much a lifetime.
13. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
Here’s another lady who couldn’t resist the magnetism and charisma of a Latino man. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos met while working on the show All My Children. Their characters were lovers on screen and it looks like that carried on into the real life. They fell in love for real. They were so infatuated with each other that they couldn’t wait to plan things out, they just went and got married in Las Vegas. That was back in 1996 and they’re still together to this day. They have 3 beautiful children together and claim to be as in love as they were when they firs met.
14. Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz
They met on the set of Vanilla Sky and it seemed like a match made in heaven. During their three year love story we saw them being affectionate on red carpets and all sorts of important Hollywood events. We were all keeping our fingers crossed for them. I mean, didn’t you think it would hilarious but kind of awesome if they got married and had a baby. Whose name would they have gone with? Cruise or Cruz? Or perhaps Cruise-Cruz. Turns out that ship wasn’t mean to go on a cruise of a lifetime. They broke up in 2004 and some of us are still a bit sad about that missed opportunity.
15. Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara
Sofia was actually married before. To Joe Gonzalez. You gotta ask yourself, does she have a thing for men named Joe? Or is it the other way round and men called Joe just have a thing for gorgeous Latina women. Either Way Sofia and True Blood star Joe Manganiello were very quick to tie the knot. They got engaged on Christmas day in 2014, and got married in November of 2015, after only a year of dating. Then again, once you manage to attract someone as awesome as Sofia Vergara, you probably wouldn’t want to wait long before letting the world know she’s yours.
